Celebrating the 4th at The Cuttlebug Spot

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! Enjoying a good day so far? I hope so! As for me, doing great with no plans except scrappin'. But first, I wanted to blog about our challenge this week at The Cuttlebug Spot. This week we are celebrating the 4th of July. Well, I knew when I saw this challenge what I wanted to do. I was inspired last week by one of my fellow Helmar DT Members, Cathy. She created this gorgeous card, which you can view HERE. Isn't it so festive and lovely?! Leave her some luv if ya want.
Here is my card that was inspired by Cathy....of course, another easel card, my fave! Giggle! I started with some Coredinations cardstock for the blue portion of the flag. I embossed it with the 'Stars' embossing folder. I then sanded over it so that the embossing would show up a bit better. Next, I took strips of red and white cardstock and tore one edge of each. I embossed the red strips with the 'Victoria' embossing folder and the white strips with the 'Swiss Dots' embossing folder. I adhered all of that using the Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner. I then created some lollipop flowers with leftover Coredinations cardstock and patterned paper. I made the brads for each center with my Imaginisce I-Top brad maker tool. I popped these up a tad for dimension using Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots. Next, I added some patriotic themed paper to the inside and buttons to keep the card open. I adhered the buttons with Helmar 450 Quick Dry. Last, I pulled out my Imaginisce I-Rock tool and used it to add the silver metal studs to the card. I am totally loving this new tool! It is just neato!!

Here is a close up of the flowers....

If you can, hop on over to The Cuttlebug Spot this week to check out the other DT's creations. I am sure you will be inspired!!!

I hope you all have a fabulous week and Happy 4th of July!!!! Happy Scrappin'!

God Bless America!!!

Pin It!

Well I don't even know where to begin~ I have looked thru your projects. I just love them all and couldn't even leave a comment on them because I might be here until next 4th! Lol. I absolutely love your Celebrating the 4th card~ just gorgeous! Then I find you give out recipes! And for the last thing we must be close in age because you have songs on your blog that only an 80's girl could appreciate! If you are not in that age bracket, I do apologize! Lol
